    i hate the fact that any reality show allows people that were outed fair and square to return

    but you know how it works, once one show does it...every other show copies

    it's purpose was to cause conflict amongsts show contestants supposedly this increases ratings

    i think it sucks though... and on a show like survivor it's really not fair because the people that were voted out were probably for a while sitting in a hotel room watching cable and eating shrimps and they get to take a hot shower

    But we don't know these things for a fact. They may have been off somewhere else on the island surviving on meager rations right up until they came back!!! We wont know until after the game is over, when everyone will ask the questions that need answering.

    Why should Nicole get a second chance in the game and not Shawn?
    That's ridiculous.

    Hmm...so you think the twist is stupid and so you want to make it even more stupid?

    Fluff didn't say that. All she said was that she didn't want to see the twist in the first place. The "make it even more stupid" part is an argument against having done it to begin with. It's called reductio ad absurdum.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    No.
    That's clearly not what I said.
    Allowing the people voted out early the option to return is ridiculous to me.
    I think Shawn has a right to feel put out.
    Why should Skinny Ryan have a second chance but Shawn not?

    If you're going to employ a stupid twist like this then clearly you need a cut off point for allowing players to rejoin, which is why I say scrap the whole idea.

    Depends on what you call backlash. True, many of us do not like the twist and find it very unfair, however it does get people talking. Survivor was the number two show last week. That is an incredible feat for a reality show in it's fourth year. Is anyone on here no longer going to watch because of this? I would say that they will lose very few viewers over this and will likely gain more than they lost due to the controversy. It sucks, but that's the way it works. However, I also feel that MB should take heed of the fact that the majority of the regular fans of the show are not too happy with this twist and he should not try something this unfair again. I think if he does then that is when he will start to lose viewers.

    Very well put. It expresses my views exactly. No, I will not stop watching either, but I'm all for fairness.

    Namaste.

    I just have issues with people quitting. Osten quitting was more aggravating to me than the twist. Back to the thread... The Ostoon av is OUTSTANDING!!!
